How do you test your internet connection ? Can you ping your ISP IP ?

I have never done that,I know when I lose the connection because the modem light for ethernet go's out and the ready light starts flashing red, I connect with dhcp and never had any problems before,either during the gui login or when I launch a browser I get cut off.

We'll need some more details here.

If you login in text mode, is your connection working? Can you:
Code:
ping www.google.com    (control-c to exit)
/sbin/ifconfig eth0
If you get responses from google, you should be good.
ifconfig eth0 will spit out the IP address and various other information of your NIC -- We do this to verify that dhcp assigned you an address, if your ping command didn't work.

If you're good to go in text-mode, we need to figure out what the heck is happening when you start X that kills your connection.

Another thing to try --
After you lose your connection, open up an xterm and su to root. Then, try reassigning your IP through dhcp with this command:
Code:
dhcpcd eth0
--Shade

Thanks It did it again and I just reinstalled so next time I will try your tips,seems like it has something to do with hotplug or seems to happen after I try to get cups working for my printer? Thanks again I hope it doesn't do it again,after I get nvidia working and alot of other stuff the way I like it,later david
also don't know if this has anything to do with it but after hardware detection says
usr/lib/libcupsimage.so.2
is not a symbolic link
usr/lib/libcups.so.2
is not a symbolic link?

Just for info. If you disable hotplug you will probably lose your connection.
I just went through that.
